Abhay Deol's maiden production BASRA, which is an edgy thriller dealing with drugs & human trafficking, to be directed by Navdeep Singh, is a film which was to be produced by filmmaker Nikhil Advani.

The film had Akshaye Khanna and Emran Hashmi in the leads but Abhay had always liked the project a lot and after Navdeep and Nikhil Advani could not come on terms about how they saw through film, Abhay was more than glad to take it over as his first production. He is now co-producing the film with PVR films.

Once he turned producer the entire casting has also undergone complete change. Abhay is now essaying the role that Akshaye was to do and Nikhil Dwivedi will essay the role of Emran Hashmi. Even Madhavan was considered for the same role but it was finally Nikhil Dwevedi who bagged it. Both Abhay and Nikhil have just finished filming for AYESHA and RAAVAN respectively.
